Did You Know?

Animal abuse, a very sad topic, but one that needs to be given attention.

Did you know animal abuse isn’t just someone hitting or hurting their own pet?

Did you know animals are being abused daily and we are allowing it?

On the packaging of items that are organic, such as cheese, it says “Pasture Raised Cows.” There are WAY less organic products available than non-organic products. So what is happening to the other cows?

I have never been much of a meat eater and now I don’t eat it at all. It can be challenging trying to find recipes that I like because it’s not like I want to sit around and just eat vegetables. In fact, there are a lot of vegetables I don’t even like.

I must say this recipe is da bom! Continue reading

I’m King Of The World!

Man has dominion over the animals, so we can treat them however we want, right? (Of course, that would be a “no”)

Whether someone believes in God or not, how about compassion & empathy?

My recent post, Why I Am A Vegetarian looks at how farm animals are treated today. I truly believe if people actually took the time to find out what is happening to animals before they become “meat in the supermarket” they would reconsider what they are eating.

We have a “head in the sand” society when it comes to animals. What we see is the “laughing cow” and “happy cow” type commercials for companies selling their products. What we don’t see is the cruelty going on to the animals to create those products. Continue reading

Sunday Pause (Paws): The Human & Animal Bond

Why I Am A Vegetarian

You probably think, well of course, she doesn’t eat meat, she’s a huge animal lover and advocate. I suppose it’s true that’s why I have never been a big meat fan, but I have actually eaten it most of my life. But for as long as I can remember, half way through every meal, I would  stop eating the meat portion of the meal. Meat itself is gross to me…the way it looks, blood, veins, and bones, oh yuk! Then when I think about the fact that it is an animal, I am done!

So, I’ve never really liked meat, but then I started learning about slaughterhouses and factory farms. OK, now I had another reason I could not eat an animal, at least not from those who do not care for them in a humane manner.

It is a personal decision whether someone eats meat or not. I do not judge anyone about this. I do, however, want to encourage you to be brave and watch the following video called “Eating Mercifully.” It is a real eye opener and it is SO important to know where your food is coming from, for health benefits and humane reasons.

When I made these Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers, I didn’t put all of the ingredients in, I put in the things I personally like and kept out the things I don’t. I even made them in the toaster oven. These peppers are really delicious!
